The Cary Amtrak Station, located in Cary, North Carolina, is served by three passenger trains, the Silver Star and Carolinian and Piedmont services. The address is 211 North Academy Street, located in the historic center of the town.
The North Carolina Department of Transportation erected a small station building in 1996, a year after Amtrak revived passenger service to Cary and approximately 20 years after the station that had served both the Southern Railway and the Seaboard Air Line was torn down. In 2010-2011 NCDOT expanded the station with a larger waiting room, restrooms, and a staffed ticket sales window. Checked baggage service is available for the Carolinian, Piedmont and Silver Star trains.
The Cary station has about 130 free parking spaces, whereas the Raleigh station has insufficient parking. Passengers boarding trains at Cary, however, are subject to weather.
